London’s skyline is constantly changing and this high resolution panorama features two striking new buildings, both close to completion. In the foreground is 20 Fenchurch Street. Its nickname the ‘Walkie Talkie’ can be attributed to its bulging, concave form. Just behind is The Leadenhall Building, rising to 225m, designed by Richard Rogers, architect of the Pompidou Centre in Paris and the Lloyd’s of London. The Leadenhall Building is informally known as the ‘Cheesegrater’ due to its wedge-like shape.
Many more famous London buildings can be seen in the image, including 30 St Mary Axe, Tower 42, Monument and on the far left you can see the new Rothschild Bank headquarters overlooking the Bank of England and the Royal Exchange.
